ONE DAY TO THERAPY
One day to Therapy is a small list of prompts and questions to help you ease into your first therapy session. This is an honest attempt by TheMindClan.com to reduce the intimidation and stigma that surrounds mental health care.
The intention of 'One Day to Therapy' is to act as a supportive resource for any individual who feels hesitant, scared, intimidated, confused, or lost about starting or restarting therapy. The idea is to take some time to answer or reflect on the questions in this resource before you visit your therapist.
